    Woman in the Spotlight: Mimi Unanue

    Hi PI Girls! I get a lot of questions about career advice, and I figured who better to ask than some of the successful women in my life I call friends? And when I use the term “successful,” I’m not just talking about money—I’m talking about overall fulfillment in a career. I will be highlighting different women of all different backgrounds, with various careers and aspirations. I’m hoping by doing this, you can take away their useful advice and apply it to your own life! —Nicole


    Spotlight on Mimi Unanue

    Q: What was your original career aspiration?

    A: I always wanted to be a doctor and help others, so I went to medical school at the University of Pennsylvania and eventually became a rheumatologist.


    Q: Are you currently working in that field? Why or why not?

    A: No. When I was practicing medicine, one of my sons at three months old had a severe attack of laryngospasm (become cyanotic) and could not breathe. Luckily we lived close to the children’s hospital and they saved his life. I left the practice thinking I would return shortly, but then I learned that two [of my children] had developmental apraxias and severe aphasias, so they could not speak. I decided to dedicate myself to my children. Now they are grown and at college or graduate school. It was the right decision for me.


    Q: What’s your best advice for an 18-year-old who is looking to be a successful working woman?

    A: Find what you love doing, get educated in that field and learn to love working hard.


    Q: What causes are you passionate about?

    A: Education, medicine and how food affects your health.


    Thank you, Mimi, for sharing your advice with us! We are so appreciative!
